Nordic Knots’ Rugs

Need an update underfoot? If so, you need a nice selection of delightfully simple patterned rugs to choose from, just like the collection from Nordic Knots. The rugs are hand loomed in 100% high quality New Zealand wool, so they maintain a soft feel for a lifetime. Plus, they’re woven straight through, so you can use both sides (if you need to).

Welcome Set

Talk about organizing your entryway, this Welcome Set by Andres Martinez has a place for all the essentials and fits in the smallest of spaces. Three included hooks give you a hanging zone for coat, bags, and scarves, while the ledge offers a perch for your keys and glasses. Of course, there’s an accompanying mirror just so you can double check that you’re presentable. Spread out all the elements along a wall if you’ve got the space, or create a smaller vignette for tighter spots.

I’m Light Notebooks

These notebooks are just what they say they are: light. With over 600 blank pages to fill with your creative ideas and drawings, you’d expect them to be dense and heavy. However, they’re made from high-quality eco friendly paper, so they’re surprisingly light. And, for those of us that like to fill the whole page, the binding lays flat. Thumbs up.

‘Pion’ Lamps

A lamp by Bertjan Pot, you say? And it’s not too terribly expensive? Well, sign me up. The ‘Pion’ lamps for Wrong.London and Hay have a shape that references a pawn chess piece (‘Pion’ is the Dutch word for “pawn”). Crafted from a stitched composite ‘Nomex’ paper, the lamp gives off a soft, diffused glow that’s sure to set the right ambience in any room. The shape is supported by a steel frame and carbon-fibre rod, and, don’t worry, the shade is both UV-stable and flame resistant. Suitable for floor or table use.

Daily Fiction

If you go weak in the knees for stationery stuff, you’re in trouble. Normann Copenhagen recruited Denmark-based designers Femmes RĂ©gionales to create over 200 different designs in the Daily Fiction collection. There’s 18 colors and four abstract terrazzo prints all over notebooks, stickers, pencil sharpeners, scissors, pens, pencils, and more… all that’s left to say is good luck picking which ones you’ve got to add to your collection.

Studio Arhoj Slurp Cup

Just look at the colors on Studio Arhoj’s Slurp Cups. Pretty, right? Each porcelain cup is hand-cast and glazed in various colors for an interesting take on your morning coffee or afternoon tea. You may choose to just get one for the office, or several for a set at home. There’s also the smaller Sip Cup for espressos or perhaps as a pot for smaller plants and succulents.

Puzzle in a Puzzle

Puzzles! Put one out on your coffee table and you’ll be able to sneak in contemplation time, because who can resist putting together a few puzzle pieces? Featuring imagery by photographer KangHee Kim, these puzzles play with the eye, as each image shows a mirror within a scene, and the puzzle itself is divided along the mirror’s perimeter, creating two different puzzles in one. Complete them together or apart. Kinda fun, right?

Split Mirrors

Feeling a little disjointed? Don’t worry, it’s just the mirror. Sections of mirrored glass are cut and pushed off-center to give a playful twist to an otherwise ordinary reflection. Take a look at the designer’s website and you’ll be able to see a theme, I think. It’d be interesting to try and make your own, wouldn’t it? Bonus points to you if you make an attempt (you’ll get an A for effort).

Sophie Conran Garden Tools

How about we get a head start on spring gardening? Being in the market for garden tools myself, I’ve noticed quite a bit of ‘stylish’ garden tools with bright colors and patterns. Nothing wrong with that, of course, but if we’re cut from the same sort of cloth, you might just appreciate the no nonsense approach of stainless steel, solid brass ferrules, and natural beech wood handles of these garden tools. Plus, the Hand Rake is notable in that the springy tines are designed to avoid damaging new shoots while gathering leaves.

Hmm, this little lamp features a matte finish and multiple convex facets. So what, you say? Well, it’ll look and feel nice, and you’ll be able to position it in multiple ways to get the light right where you want it. Think of it as a subtle spotlight, perfect for ambient lighting in a living area or bedroom.

Hasami Porcelain Teapot

Not only does this Hasami Porcelain Teapot have a classically modern shape, it shares the same diameter as other pieces in the Hasami Porcelain collection, which allows for easy transport and stacking. That’s not only beneficial for your cabinet space, but it also makes for an efficient and aesthetically pleasing tablescape. Crafted from a custom blend of clay and porcelain, the surface is softer to the touch than traditional porcelain.

Sweep by Gentner Design

Whoa, this is one serious dustpan and brush. Made entirely of brass and horsehair, the set hangs elegantly from a magnetic peg on the wall. It’s possible that it’s the prettiest dustpan and brush we’ve ever seen- so much so that it would be a shame to hide it away in a pantry or storage closet. Also be sure to check out Gentner Design’s brass Bud Vases and miniature Watering Can.

La Savoie Book Box

Don’t have a safe? You could hide your valuables safely away from prying eyes and sticky fingers in a “mysterious” hollow book. I’ve tried making one of these before; it took a long time to cut out the inner area of pages and it took a lot of glue to make the pages stick together properly. Save yourself the trouble and get one of these for $10.

Block Shop Dhurrie Rugs

As promised, here are the Block Shop Rugs. Made of 100% Indian cotton, dyed and woven by hand, each rug features a simple, graphic design that’s sure to liven up any lonely room. Dhurries, if you’re not familiar, are flat woven rugs designed for heavy use. While they don’t have a thicker pile like other rugs, they are lightweight, durable, and reversible. Now, to choose a favorite… it’d have to be the Walter or the Temple, I think.

Compact Weather Station

Yes, you could rely on your smartphone for the weather forecast, but wouldn’t it be more fun to read an an aneroid-capsule barometer, bimetallic dial thermometer, and mechanical coil hygrometer, all from your desktop or kitchen counter? Those three tools are all in this Compact Weather Station, which measures in at 5″ diameter and 1.5″ depth. You’ll be able to read just what to expect from the climate, indoors and out, and look like an old school smartypants (in the best possible way) whilst doing so.
